Not News Anymore: Diablo III Is Coming!

I was flirting with the idea I could create an isometric, hack-and-slash, action role playing game like the Diablo series of computer games. I just needed some relevant gaming engines and some grim-looking graphics. In other words, I had a pipe dream, being neither a coder nor a graphic designer. I do still have some cool concepts, regarding storyline and user interfaces - well, to me, anyway.

Salvation from my quixotic quest came the other day when I was on Facebook. I clicked on a friend of a friend's profile, who was in my local network, so I could see his profile. His status update read something like, "Excited about the Diablo 3 announcement."

I was like, "Get out!" like Elaine from Seinfeld.

And so I checked out the official preview website from Blizzard. Needless to say, when this game is released, I'll have to put being the following on hold: Independent songwriter/producer, independent filmmaker, intermediate-level stock trader (the economy sucks anyway), and loudmouth political blogger.

I'm going to be a demon-cleavin' swordsman.

  1. Looks good. Dope graphics. I've never heard of it until now (still stuck in the past playing Zelda for Wii and NBA Live for PS2). Diablo is for what game console?

  2. Diablo III is a PC game (Win or Mac). I just hope my machine will be able to handle it when the game is released.
